Celebrating Jaeger-LeCoultre's 186-year relationship with the Art of Precision, the performers read out historic letters that included missives from David Hockney (delivered by Cumberbatch in a convincing Yorkshire lilt), a dispatch from London from Vincent van Gogh to his brother, which was read by Peters, and from Bamber, a poison pen piece from Marguerite Louise d’Orleans to her estranged husband Cosimo de Medici. With perfect wide-eyed sincerity the Les Miserables star also read a brief letter sent to the editor of The Times that decried the absence of the Duchess of Cambridge from their pages for a single day, which ended simply: “I do hope she’s alright”.
Benedict talking about precision and art. It doesn’t sound like he really knows what he’s talking about, but he rambles on anyway! Ha! And he mentions his sister, which I can’t remember him ever doing before.
